Welcome to MyBinding video. Let’s have a look at the Akiles iWire 21. This is a manual 2:1 Pitch Wire Binding Machine. This is an all in one unit that takes your pieces, puts them together into book form with one machine. Measuring tools are directly built into the machine, like this gadget right on the front that allows you to measure the thickness of your book so you get the right size 2:1 pitch wire. A simple sliding to the left or the right, you set a closer size according to the size of your document. One more setting right here on the back side where you put in the papers to punch is the side margin control knob. Set it to your size paper, make your punch on some scrap paper to make sure it’s perfect and how you want it, nice and even, and you’re all set. As with all punch and bind projects, it’s good to start with your cover and if you start face out, do the entire project face out. The bind length capacity is 12” so anything that size or smaller is great for this machine. And when it comes to punching, this machine can handle 15 sheets of 20 pound paper in a single punch. And now for the binding. This tool is used for those at random pieces of wire laying around that you’re not sure the size. Little spacebar-type thing on the back side that says ‘press here’ is where you press here in order to lift up the front of this edge and slip the wire underneath. It holds it in place while you thread your project. Placing the back cover against the front cover and threading them first allows for the seam of the wire to be hidden within the book. This machine has a bind capacity of 280 sheets. You’ll just need to make sure you have the right 2:1 pitch size wire. When you’re all threaded, release the book and you’ll see that the bind itself makes a C-shape. With that C-shape facing down, put it into the closing trough. And with the same lever you punched, you now close. And since you’ve already set the closing to stop at the size for your wire, it will stop automatically and you cannot over pinch. And if done properly, you’ll find that the seam of the wire is hidden between that back cover in the back page. And from time to time, you’ll need to empty the chip tray. They all fall right here below the machine. And that’s just how easy it is to make a book with the iWire 21. For more demos, reviews and how-to’s, check out MyBinding.com.

Akiles iWire 21 Wire Binding Machine Review

Wire binding can make your documents look elegant and professional. You just need to have the right binding machine to do it. One contender is the Akiles iWire 21, a product that was just released. Here’s a look at this device’s strengths and weaknesses. Check them out so you can decide if this product is right for you.

Strengths:

  • The iWire 21 has a reasonably decent punching capacity. It can punch up to 15 sheets of paper at once, provided the paper is of the 20 lb. bond variety. Your pages will be properly punched because this device has a side margin guide that will center them properly.
  • This machine has harden steel dies that will punch clean holes all the time. This is even true if you’re punching cardstock, PVC, and other other materials.
  • The iWire 21 makes it easy to select the right spine for your document. It has a wire selector so you’ll be able to choose the right supplies for your documents. When it comes time to close the wires, you can use this machine’s built-in wire closer.
  • As far as what wire spines are compatible with this device, all 2:1 pitch wire spines from 3/16” to 1.25” thick can be used. Thus, you’ll be able to create documents that contain up to 250 pages.
  • This device is easy to keep clean because it has an anti-dust cover. The cover will keep foreign materials out of the machine so it will stay in good working condition.
  • The iWire 21 has a terrific contemporary appearance. It will look great in any work environment.
  • Finally, the iWire 21 is priced affordably so purchasing it won’t totally blow your budget. It comes with a one-year warranty so you’re covered if your particular device turns out to be a dud.

Weaknesses:

  • The iWire21 doesn’t have disengageable dies, so you’ll be limited to producing letter- and A4-sized documents. You should choose a different machine if you wanted to make books of different sizes.
  • This device’s punching and binding handle is located on its right side. This will be inconvenient for left-handed users.
  • Although this machine’s punching capacity is good for small and medium-sized documents, it’s probably not going to cut it if you need to produce a lot of books in a short amount of time. If you regularly need to do that, the iWire 21 isn’t going to be the right device for you.

Akiles has always made twin-loop wire binding devices that are of the highest quality, and they’ve done so again with the iWire 21. This is the perfect device for schools and small offices, and it has everything you need to put together professional-looking documents. You’ll find this machine easy to use and that it’s well-constructed. True, this product does have a couple of weaknesses, but what product doesn’t? As long as you’re content with producing letter-sized books and you don’t need a heavy-duty machine, you’ll find that the iWire 21 is the machine for you. Take a look at it today.
